FAMILY fundraisers have handed over cheques totalling more than £4,000 to two good causes.

David Sones and his family had hoped to raise £1,000 by holding an event with live music and disco at Gedney Drove End Village Hall.

But the party, as well as a sponsored headshave, smashed the total, which ended up at £4,197.55.

The money has been split between Macmillan Cancer Support and Breast Cancer UK.

David thanked everyone who supported the fundraising, including businesses who donated over 60 raffle prizes.

He said: “The evening was a great success and a sell-out.”

David and his family were inspired to hold the event as relatives have called on both charities for support.
